elbow

Depth Psychology: Elbows are a symbol of your nimbleness, or a sign that you are strong enough to hold on. Seen in negative terms, it may refer to elbowing oneself forward. Are you using your elbows too much (as the perpetrator) or are you suffering from somebody else’s use of “too much elbow’ (being the victim)? Only you can determine which of the two possibilities apply to you.

To notice your or someone else’s elbows in your dream, indicates that you need to make a space for yourself. Your dream may express hesitance or fear in creating your own space for fear of being scrutinized.

To dream that your elbow is wounded suggests your inability to function in some waking situation, possibly a romantic one.

Pain in your arm is a warning of difficulty.

If it is sufficiently severe to prevent the use of the arm, then be very cautious in your business ventures.

Dreams of an elbow represent your ability to protect yourself, to set boundaries, and to bend to accommodate other people’s desires.

The universe may be nudging you to change directions, and be open and flexible to input from others.
